In the other thread, a molecular biologist is pulling his hair out in the comments when I discuss his field. I have sympathy, and I really hope I don’t sound like Soros talking about Hayek (HT2 LRC). If I were paid to pretend to know a little bit about free market economics, but not much, I don’t think I could have come up with a better essay than this. Holy cow.
(BTW if you don’t know much about Hayek, don’t bother clicking. It’s not an intrinisically interesting piece, unless you want to get to know the guy who will be on the currency you use in 20 years.)
